Book Group News from Shona

by | May 23, 2020 | News and reports

It was nice to have a Zoom meet lon Thursday night. Ten of us were able to join in which was great.

We discussed the two books from last month. Three of us had read North Child by Edith Pattou and we all enjoyed it. It is a children’s story based on a Norwegian fable. It was light and easy to read and had trolls and speaking polar bears and magical castles and a happy ending. Just what you need during lockdown! We gave it 4.5/5.

All the Hidden Truths by Clare Askew was also enjoyed as well. We liked that the main characters were three women and it was clever how the author brought them together although they were from different sides of the story. We also liked how the reporter got his comeuppance at the end! It got 4/5.

This month we have chosen The Corfu | Trilogy (three books in one) by Gerald Durrell. They are the books that the TV series The Durrell was based on and/or The rest of their lives by Jean Paul Didier Laurent.

We have planned to meet again on Zoom on Thursday 18th June at 7.30pm

Hope you are all staying safe and well Love Shona
